Armut im Lebensverlauf



"Poverty research works with different measuring concepts and data sources. Based on the panel study 'Labour Market and Social Security', Jonas Beste presents the approaches most commonly used, compared to other panel data. In addition to listing the similarities and variations in the measurement of poverty, he describes the different manifestations that poverty can have. Thus, he gives insight into the following questions: What impact does the specific database used have on the results of poverty analyses? How can deprivation be evaluated in the individual standard of living? How can poverty dynamics be distinguished according to different concepts of poverty? What factors influence a change in the standard of living? How are resources converted into standard of living and what role is played by a household's financial situation (employment), a person's individual characteristics or regional variations?"
